So my partner of almost 4 years was recently diagnosed with Testicular which they removed and thought everything was ok but then now on his monthly scan have discovered the tumour in his liver and the cancer has gone gone into his back.. I think shock hit us first, he is only 33 and I am 28, we are at the stages of desperate for a baby and about to buy our new house.. and then the bomb dropped.. Life just stopped.. But I thought we had gotten thought it until the latest news of its too difficult in his back to operate, a month of chemo and then a month or radio is about to start.. Once the shock settled down for him, he seemed okay.. he was managing and carried on pretty normal. But its now a week until chemo and he has completely closed down. He will hardly speak to me, doesn't even want me at home.. just seems to have shut off from the world completely and I just want to show him that I'm not going anywhere. I don't want to leave his side for a single second and will look after him again through this now. How on earth can I prove to him I'm here for the long haul?! I get he will take things out on me when he's mad or frustrated but its so hard feeling so distant from someone you was so close too. I am trying to hard to show him how much I am there for him.. what else can I do?! Its hard not to take it personally but I just want to make things better and I know I cant... Any advice ?!
